so i have decided that with some amazon money, i will be getting a vinyl scratch figure. however, i suddenly realized that said figure is a standard hasbro figure (from the favorite collection)
so now, i am kind of panicking. i have never styled anything before. i have looked at many styling guides on the internet, but they're all very confusing. i'm hoping that i can find a way to trim the hair without cutting or heating it. does anyone have any suggestions?
TL;DR: please give tips for styling hair on toy.

Uh...

This makes me a little uncomfortable.

I'm not sure that many of us here know how to manestyle the pony toys. Maybe ask Auron Blade? He collects them.

I've never styled any toy myself. Don't think I ever will (I'm lazy and incapable of doing artistic things with my hands).

So yeah, study a guide to death and if possible, ask somepony who actually DOES style them. If there is information you can use to contact one of the stylists on a guide, give it a go.

Short Circuit I don't collect them. I happen to have a few, but I must make the distinction between that and collecting.

As for styling, I'm just as clueless as everyone else here. All I can say is be careful removing them from the packaging and hope that their hair doesn't become an unmanagable mess. I've honestly been thinking of looking up a guide or two myself just so I can make them look more presentable.

So yeah, sorry I can't be of any help here.

plastic mane ftw!

honestly, having a plastic body, then a mane and tail that can be styled just seems so...off.

exactly, that's why i think that it would be great if hasbro could sell ponies with pre-molded manes. i'd be willing to pay at least $10 per pony
I thought that they already make collectible figures without the brushable manes for bronies. With the manes the same material as the body.

Show-accurate? None of the toys I've seen have been show-accurate. They all look like the old-gen ponies, with the gigantic snouts.
